Pigalle - Saint-Georges

This coquettish central Paris neighborhood springs to life when the sun goes down.

Garter-belts, hazy rooms, and the iconic Moulin Rouge theatre perpetuate Pigalle – Saint-Georges’ racy reputation. Serving as Paris’ red-light district, this unapologetically coquettish neighborhood pursues more than deep pockets and affronting eroticism. Pigalle – Saint-Georges fosters other passions, too—Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh both painted here, local artisans make culinary delights by hand, and dedicated musicians can find antique instruments in this neighborhood’s specialty shops. Daytime is welcome in Pigalle – Saint-Georges, but the neighborhood truly comes to life after dark.
